I love how the white guy gets off, and it somehow brings out the persecuted white crowd in droves.

We are so put-upon!

oh ok, yeah that makes a ton of sense. i would have beaten Zimmerman's ass too if he ran up on me like i was a criminal and tried to instigate something. granted i would have attempted to be civil but once he put his hands on me that would have been it.
he would never have gotten to his gun...
Unless your a juror you speak from ignorance. Obviously beyond reasonable doubt was proven. The feds will now get involved and probably do a civil case against Zimmerman because with so much angst over this verdict, you know they are gonna get involved.

For those that don't know and don't want to click the link, Plessy was part of the Plessy vs Ferguson case that created "Separate but Equal" segregation.

Yeah...Zimmerman is a multi-cultural mutt. I guess that makes him unique...like the rest of us.

If Zimmerman is white then the people that claim that need to claim Obama white too.

Because in that neighborhood there had been an increase in burglaries done by young black men. He was a young black kid concealed by a hoodie. Instead of saying hey I live here or waiting on the cops he attacked, like a thug. A neighborhood watch watches for suspicious activity. A kid out at night concealed by a hoodie in a neighborhood watching for potential burglars will draw attention.

Yeah we have some problems but living in America still pretty good.

Jason got mad at me, called me a racist for saying if it is that bad for blacks maybe they would have been better off going back to Liberia or other black countries. thats not racism thats a white person getting burnt out his race always gets blamed for everything. Don't minorities think that takes a toll on us? All we hear no matter how we act in life is white people this, white people that. Then when this incident happened and we were whew a latino and black we won't get drug through the burners! ooooops sorry he is half white and so we have to own him also? hell you don't see people saying the half white president today said.......or did.......

They labeled him half white because he did something perceived by blacks as racist. It must have been the white half right? evil friggin whitey crackers.

i will apologize though for the comment maybe they should have went back to Liberia. I don't really believe they would have been, or whites would have been. The best thing for us to be ultra powerful society and country is to learn to live together without pointing fingers at the different races. But i would be lying if i said it doesn't hurt my feelings that all we hear is white people this, whites are racist, whites keep us down, and then when they focused on Zimmerman being half white it did bother me a lot.

Sorry Jason and i am not saying that to get you to like me. I know you won't. I just want you to know that i don't feel superior to you in any way because of my race. Anyone who thinks that is an idiot.
You are the most coherent stupid person I've ever seen.

You certainly did not suggest that white people go back to Europe. Nope, you suggested that black people go back to, wait, get sent back to Africa after slavery ended so that white folks today wouldn't have to deal with racial issues. Excuse us black people for being such a thorn in white people sides. I guess we are a reminder to you of what this country did to black people for a good 400 years. Sounds like you have a lot of guilt that you don't want to deal with, and if we weren't here then you wouldn't have to deal with the burden. It must suck to be you, it must suck to be a white man living in America.

My above statement is not to blame white people for the situation that black America is in (even though I do believe that white people did play a part, but black people have to be accountable for their own situation). My statement is directed at the racial BS that cutthemdown has been spewing here for years. I've just had enough of it. The guy has race issues.
